If we win tonight, it’s the spirit crusher. I’m talking the straw that breaks the Girardi’s back. Sure, the Yanks will leave this series and go off and pound some third-rate teams into submission. But if we take tonight’s contest, if we best yet another of their off-season, mega-million dollar prizes, then the all important “psychological edge” is ours for keeps (as if it hasn’t already been in our back pocket since the 2004 ALCS).
We’re asking a lot of Brad Penny tonight. On a “rebel alliance hoping Luke Skywalker can take out the Death Star” level. Can he come through? Will this lovable schlump of a guy get a win in the biggest game of his life? Tune in and find out. And join the action in our comments section.
